About me

Hello, my name is Nichola and thank you for viewing my profile.

If you have come to the Counselling Directory then you are thinking of getting help for yourself, or someone you know.

To start I offer a free 45 minute session.  This time is for you to experience how comfortable a session would be with me. We can talk about what you are experiencing and then you can decide on where we go from there.

I appreciate it's so hard to know where to start especially with us coming out of what has been, and still, is very uncertain times.

I understand all too well you're feeling lost, confused, saddened or overwhelmed by situations. This can lead to a variety of unwelcome anxieties, stress and depression. This can cause a lack in confidence and low self esteem,  this can be worked through with you gaining a better and healthier way of both feeling and looking at yourself.

Mental health is such a huge part in so many people's lives, and can be debilitating for some.  Different mental health conditions can be brought on by many reasons, and at times you can feel as though it has come out the blue.  For those of you who recognise the cause, whether it may be past or present problems, there is always a way through;  and for those of you who have no idea we will work through it together.

Please don’t suffer in silence. If you are ready to take the next step then that is brilliant. I have helped many people get passed what they felt was the impossible.

I offer a confidential safe spaces to use the time with me to talk freely.  I like to think that I am easy to talk too and get along with without effort. Hopefully this makes me an ideal person for those of you who are shy or uncomfortable with the thought of counselling.

If this feels like it could be the right fit for you then please send me a message or give me a call . I really look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
